In 2010, Eminem opened up about his abuse of pills.

“I used to get pills wherever I could. I was just taking anything that anybody was giving to me.”

He also mentioned methadone as one of the prescription pills he abused which almost cost him his life.

“Vicodin, Valium and Ambien, and toward the end, which caused my overdose, methadone.”

The rapper however replaced addiction with exercise which helped him a lot after he got out of rehab.

“When I got out of rehab, I needed to lose weight, but I also needed to figure out a way to function sober. Unless I was blitzed out of my mind, I had trouble sleeping. So I started running. It gave me a natural endorphin high, but it also helped me sleep, so it was perfect.”
